We Hold onto the Promise in Hope

On the 5th Thursday of Lent we read from today’s passage from Genesis 17 of God’s faithfulness

I will maintain my covenant with you and your descendants after you throughout the ages as an everlasting pact, to be your God and the God of your descendants after you.
I will give to you and to your descendants after you the land in which you are now staying, the whole land of Canaan, as a permanent possession; and I will be their God.”

We hold onto this promise in these last weeks of Lent.
We hold onto this promise in the times of dryness.
We hold onto this promise in hope.

Sister Adele Rowland, OP, named this image "Counterpoint".

Sister Adele gave the name Counterpoint Images to her particular technique of creating the photo montage (long before there was even a thought of Photoshop). These counterpoint images showed the genuine relationship between the juxtaposed elements. And it is the authenticity of this relationship which underlies the integrity of her montages – the final image presenting a living, organic, coherent whole.
